Located in Boracéia, only 1 km in the direction of the sierra, the Tupi-Guaraní Indigenous Reserve houses 120 Indian families in 948.40 hectares and has a special school for approximately 350 indigenous children. Preserving their culture, the natives maintain common practices such as hunting, palmito, cassava and maize cultivation, armament making and traditional painting. Our tour begins with the trail through the native vegetation of the Atlantic Forest, especially in this itinerary we are accompanied by an indigenous guide, destined to the rivers of crystalline waters and waterfalls, we cross the trails showing many curiosities like the various animals and plants, footprints of large Antas, Pacas and Cutias, in addition to what is presented by the indigenous guide. Returning from the trail, we know a little of their culture very closely, being able to talk with the Pajé, the Cacique and the families who sell their beautiful crafts and armaments, as well as painting the body of the tourists. The experience is unique, it is like diving back in time some thousands of years ago and observing the wonders of a virgin and primitive Brazil, free from the tendencies of modernity.
